Today, Thursday, Aug. 15, is the birthday of slain rapper, activist and community leader Ermias “Nipsey Hussle” Asghedom.

Hussle, who was gunned down on March 31, 2019, in Los Angeles outside of his Marathon Clothing store, would have been 34 years old.

He was remembered across social media on his posthumous birthday.

His longtime girlfriend, actress Lauren London, with whom he had 2-year-old son, Kross Asghedom, posted this special message:

Today We celebrate You, my beloved,
Today we honor you, King
We are to live in our highest vibrations today because that is how Nip lived his life.
We should encourage and inspire today because that is how Hussle lived his life.
Today we should love and give truth because that is how He lived his life.

His sister, Samantha Smitha, Meek Mill, DJ Khaled, T.I. and others who were friends of the “Double Up” rapper’s, also took to social media to commemorate his life.
